Will your sunscreen protect you?

Summer's coming in the Western hemisphere and with that comes a lot more sunny days and more outdoor activities.  With that in mind, we need to keep our skin protected from the threat of skin cancer. If you can, limit your sun exposure time and protect your body.

While commercial sunscreens may contain chemicals that are not necessarily "healthy" for the body, using them when you're spending a lot of time under sun may be safer than using nothing at all.  We found a great guide to use for comparing the toxicity of various sunscreen ingredients. Check it out here - The Trouble With Ingredients in Sunscreens.

There are also natural alternatives available. Read about them in Healthhub by Sunwarrior.  You can X2O from Xooma Worldwide adds over 72 trace minerals to your water and helps your body stay alkaline, resisting the harmful damage caused by free radicals.
also always protect yourself by keeping your body hydrated at the cellular level with a mineral-rich alkaline water supplement.

It's also important to maintain a diet rich in healthy fats and antioxidants. If you choose to supplement your diet, we recommend taking Omega 3/75 from Xooma Worldwide and the flavor-rich antioxidant drink mix, Blast, also from Xooma Worldwide. Omega 3/75 is a one-of-a-kind, ultra-pure formula that contains a high ration of EPA & DHA (Essential Fatty Acids) along with shark liver oil & squalene for immune system support. Blast, on the other hand, is natural fruit/vegetable flavoring with a high ORAC value and low-glycemic value content. Both work to keep your body's immune support system strong and fight off damage caused by things like free radicals.

Check these suggestions out. Keep yourself safe this summer season as you enjoy your time outdoors.
